Clark Material Handling Company has completed the expansion of its production facility in Lexington, Kentucky. With the completion of the third section of the plant, Clark has finalised the realignment of its production line for S-Series IC engine counterbalanced forklifts. Seung-Soo Baik, CEO & Vice Chairman of Clark Material Handling International, travelled from Korea for the ceremonial opening and cut the opening ribbon together with Dennis Lawrence, President & CEO of the Clark Material Handling Company, for the symbolic start of production. “With the inauguration of our new production facility, we have not only set the course for future growth, but with the help of this we have also been able to improve our entire operating processes, reduce waste and shorten throug
LogiMAT, the International Trade Fair for Intralogistics Solutions and Process Management, will open its doors for the 18th time from 10th to 12th March 2020. Once again in 2020, Clark Europe will be using the exhibition platform in Stuttgart to introduce trade visitors to the extensive Clark product portfolio of in-house logistics solutions. New products in the electrical segment will be at the heart of the Clark trade show. Clark will have a 207 m² exhibition stand at the LogiMAT to present the company in hall 10, booth D61. One of the highlights on the exhibition stand is the EPXi series of electric four-wheel forklifts launched in 2019. The counterbalance trucks are available in capacities from 2.0 to 3.2 tonnes and they have proven themselves in applications that were once an e
Clark has extended its range of counterbalance forklifts with internal combustion engines. Under the model name C80D900, the industrial truck specialist is launching a new diesel forklift version with a load capacity of eight tons at 900 mm load centre. The vehicle now takes its place in the existing C60-80 series with load capacities of six to eight tons. Like all Clark vehicles, the C80D900 has been designed in accordance with the proven ‘built-to-last’ concept, which stands for solid, functional design with high-quality components. This includes a fully welded robust frame, a sturdy steering axle, and robust lifting gear with a solid eight-roller fork carriage with four side support rollers. The lifting cylinder and the quiet lifting hydraulics ensure gentle, low-noise load
Clark has launched a new range of electric four-wheel forklift trucks capable of taking on combustion forklifts, not just in terms of power, but also in terms of cost. The EPXi performs its tasks just as reliably as a comparable diesel or LPG forklift and the cost of purchase is also on par with that of an IC Forklift. The EPXi electric forklift is therefore the quiet and eco-friendly alternative for customers who have so far decided against an electric vehicle. In many fields of application, which were once considered a purely combustion engine domain, today’s electric forklifts ensure at least the same high efficiency. The reason why many operators still decide against electric vehicles are the often higher procurement costs. With the EPX20i-32i, Clark has now designed an electric
